Diabetes is Serious Campaign Launch

Chris Green (Conservative) – the MP for Bolton West and Atherton, attended the “Diabetes is Serious” campaign launch in the House of Commons, which included a report revealing how there were 7,000 excess deaths involving the condition last year.

Mr Green (left) said: “I was delighted to attend a Diabetes UK Reception to raise awareness of this debilitating condition. It is important that people with diabetes can access the routine care and support that they need to prevent life-changing complications”.

As well as Mr Green, the event was attended by more than 70 other MPs alongside other attendees who heard from Diabetes UK chief executive, Chris Askew OBE, and people living with diabetes.
